You can download above extension with modman also.

After installed this extension you have to provide some configuration settings to work this extension properly.

HOW TO CONFIG

Once you have downloaded, go to System -> Configuration-> Aschroder Extension -> SMTP Pro

Here you will see that module allows you to use free SMTP from: Gmail, Amazon SES, , SendGrid, or Custom SMTP.

For module running and operating, we need a Gmail account. I will create a Gmail account used for sending email only.


Configuration is relatively simple. you just need to choose Google Apps or Gmail, then fill username + Password.

Choose Save config.

After you save config, to see whether module has run or not, still in config, you click on Tab Logging and Debugging.

Then the config has completed, module is running.

You can test it easily by registering as a new customer, then check whether you have received welcome email or not.
